If Apple is so concerned about user privacy and security then why is Google the default search engine on Safari and why is Facebook installed by default on iOS? Dave Farrington:
Google and Facebook make their money by stealing private and personal data from Apple’s customers. For example, Apple makes Google the default search engine on Safari. Who gathers, slices, and dices more personal information than Google. What do you get in return?
Less privacy, of course. An online profile is constructed between Google and its advertisers of which websites you visit, where you search for and purchase products online, and, if you’re into Gmail, who you send email to and receive email from, in addition to the message’s content. How is that good for an iPhone user?
To many Facebook users, Facebook is the internet. Since Facebook, like Google, automatically collects personal user data– searches, family members, co-workers, read articles, shared information, and much more– is not Apple complicit with Facebook’s dubious practices? Is Apple not complicit with the spread of fake news on Facebook?
